Apologies didn't search the manual completely. Can anyone let me know if there is a way to convert packed decimal value to numeric value in SORT

I want to convert PIC S9(15) COMP-3 to 9(15) COMP without sign. When I give the format as OUTREC FIELDS=(3,8,PD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=15, I am getting sign over punch on the last byte.
For example, I am seeing 00000015499319E insttead of 000000154993195. How can I get 000000154993195 in the output.

Actually, with DFSORT you would automatically get 000000154993195. You must be using Syncsort if you're getting E instead of 5. So I'm moving this post from the DFSORT Forum to the JCL Forum.
